The Once A Month Swim Workout

It's been way too long without swimming.  Almost a month!  Oy!  I set my alarm this morning to go swimming but pressed snooze way too many times.  Finally at 7:17 I got out of bed put on a swim suit Sunswimand just headed to the pool.  The gang on Sunday meet up at 7:30am and I was the first at the pool.  I thought maybe they no longer got together.  I was about to go home and back to bed then one arrived.

Nothing great but without swimming for almost a month I'm beat.  The pool water temp was in the high 80's F.  The F stands for FUCKIN' HOT!  But I got in 2,000 yards.  That is more then I swim on my own when I get to the pool for lunch hour swims.

July was just a sad month!  4,000 yards for the month basically.  That's like one long swim workout.  May was the only descent month this year.  I know August won't be great.  Oh well.  At least I'm swimming sorta and some of the time.
